We had the honor of capturing Victoria and Kevin’s wedding at Hacienda Siesta Alegre in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, and we are still getting over how beautiful it was. It was such a romantic celebration at the most magical wedding venue, and we couldn’t wait to share their special day with you all!
From beginning to end, Victoria and Kevin’s Hacienda Siesta Alegre destination wedding was absolutely a dream come true. We began the day by documenting each and every small detail they put their time & effort into, including adorable little personalized favors for each of their guests, dinner tables full of jaw-dropping bohemian decor, and the most gorgeous stationery we have seen in a long time. Every detail was full of intention and was so meaningful to the couple.
Oh, and did we mention the breathtaking florals that they had created for their special day? The bridal bouquet that Victoria got to carry around was absolutely magical, with large, blooming flowers surrounded by smaller elements to add texture & layers to the bouquet. And the flowers on each of the tables, along with the pampas grass, made for such a beautiful elegant, bohemian look.
After getting ready for the day with their loved ones, Victoria and Kevin spent a few minutes together for their sweet first look – one of our favorite moments of the day to witness. Their ceremony in the garden was simply gorgeous, as they stood at the altar with the mountains in the background, lush greenery surrounding them as well as all of their friends & family. They didn’t waste any time afterward, heading right into their reception to dance the night away in the courtyard with their guests. Every moment of the day felt like it was straight out of a fairytale!
Victoria actually created all the stationery herself, which is so impressive – just look at how beautiful each piece is! She also wore multiple pieces of heirloom jewelry, which added meaningful little touches to her outfit and added to how beautiful she already looked. The couple even put together a special family tree at the check-in table, full of wedding photos going back generations. How cool of an idea is that!
This beautiful day would not have been possible without the help of a talented team of wedding vendors. If you are looking for vendors to hire for your own Hacienda Siesta Alegre wedding, check out the ones that Victoria & Kevin hired for their special day!

Before we wrap up this blog, we cannot thank Victoria enough for the kind review that she wrote us after we photographed & filmed their wedding day. We just had to share it, so that you can get an idea of what your wedding could look like with us, too!
“Jorge and Evy are an incredibly talented couple who work so well together. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and artistic abilities are some of the best I have seen in this industry. As someone familiar with photography and who has built a career in the arts, my artistic vision for our wedding day was incredibly specific. Jorge and Evy were truly welcoming of that and captured the intimacy and significance of both our private shoot and Wedding Day with such ease.
Besides their incredible abilities, I also chose Jorge and Evy because it felt very important to me that our photos not feel forced or posed. My husband is very shy and uncomfortable in front of the camera and I wanted a team that could take that pressure off of him. They truly have such warm personalities and made us both feel incredibly comfortable.
Every one of our guests raved about not only the professionalism of Pearl Memories but also the excellence of their work after the wedding. Jorge and Evy were incredibly accommodating, adventurous, and efficient. I would not have chosen anyone to capture our day on photo and film. Their work is tasteful, intimate, emotional but not forced or corny – which was hard to find for me.
Choose them and you will want to look at your photos/video every single day after your wedding.”
Victoria and Kevin, thank you so much for allowing us to capture your special day; it’s always an honor, sending lots of hugs!
